Police make breakthrough in two recent killings

The police have made some headway in their investigations into two recent killings on the island.

Joey Kurvel Greenaway has been charged with the stabbing death, last weekend, of Eustace Ricky Joseph of Woodford Hill.

According to police reports, Greenaway appeared in court on Thursday. He has been remanded in custody.

The police said that Joseph died as a result of a stab wound to the neck.

Meantime, former prison officer, Roy Popo was arrested last Friday in connection with the shooting death of Keith Isles in Morne Prosper. He has been remanded in custody and the matter returns to court on the 19th of July.

In other police news, Woodford Hill police have said that they are searching for two masked men who they believe were responsible for an incident which occurred on Wednesday involving a truck belonging to Josephine Gabriel and Company.

The truck was held up on the Woodford Hill main road by the masked men who made good their escape with an undisclosed amount of money and the keys for the truck.

    Sad news, and good news that the police are making a breakthrough. meanwhile the gardens murder remains unsolved while the main suspect right infront their eyes and maybe even tampering with evidence.

    These murders need to be solved, use the same technology on them, use phone records.’

      respect to your comment/contribution.
      but please, do you live outside of Dominica?
      Be informed: The country does not have the luxury of internet facilities at 100% yet. We are still under recovery and the providers are working at doing so.

      Thank you

    I’m surprised that the GESTAPO still finds time to arrest ordinary criminals. As far as political criminals is concerned they all walk free, that’s to say as long as they carry the DLP party book. Dominica is very close to a fully fledged dictatorship…

    Well what can I say apart from all crime is crime. ………………………………………………. Unfortunately some criminals are arrested by the police while others were never investigated. Some criminals around the world will spend many years in prison, while some criminals around the world are lawmakers.
